Morphology FAIL

I was on the train today (yes, a train, here in America!) and caught sight of this billboard.  It was for a car, maybe a Buick???  Well, I was so riveted by the bizarreness of the morphology that I didn't really register the product (one of the many ways the billboard failed, I guess), but here's what I did catch:
flexible nimble luxurious-ble 
 I mean, I mean, wait, nooooooooooooooooo!!!  That just does not work, in so many ways!
